ToySky CSJ S162: Mavic Mini clone for less than $100

CSJ S162 drone quadcopter

From the first sight it is obvious that the ToySky CSJ S162 wants to copy the Mavic Mini’s design in every detail. It features similar foldable arms, battery compartment and landing gears. Furthermore, it claims to have also 249g just like the MINI.

Toy-Sky offers their CSJ S162 drone with two types of camera. While 1080P version is advertised for $79.99, the 4K for 85.99. Both edition are available with 1, 2 or 3 flight batteries. According to the technical specs the 7.4V/1200mAh LIPO pack allows up 18 minutes flight time.

While with folded arms the aircraft measures 16 x 10 x 7.5cm, ready to fly has 37 x 33 x 7.5cm. During night flight you will be guided by 4 LED lights: two in front and two on back (one under each rear motor).

  1. Hey, I `ve just got my Mavic Mini clone and it`s great.
    I`m only struggling with the functions “Remote camera angle adjustment (90 degree)”
    In the manual is writing “to adjust the angle of the camera, push the camera up button.
    I can`t find this button. I have only the Take a picture button.
    Is this function not included?
